CoolSculpting Treatments Contour Away Stubborn Fat
Want to get rid of stubborn fat without leaving behind any embarrassing scars? CoolSculpting is the answer you’ve been looking for. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical and non-invasive body-sculpting procedure that can help you lose those inches and start wearing what you want without fear.
Fat Reduction Can Be a Challenge
Even if you’ve been doing everything your nutritionist or trainer orders, you may still be fighting a losing battle against stubborn fat. Fat reduction is not as simple as eating fewer calories; it is complex and dependent on your body’s metabolism.
Targeted fat loss through exercise is a myth, because when a person partakes in physical activity, the overall body temperature rises. To sustain the activity, the body burns readily available resources and is not concentrating on a specific region as an energy source. Thus, the fat loss that occurs happens in a general way all over the body instead of in any one specific place.
What Is CoolSculpting?
Exercise doesn’t get rid of fat cells, it only shrinks them. When a person successfully exercises away stubborn flab, the fat cells remain. Over time, they expand again due to genetic factors and lifestyle factors.
With CoolSculpting, the fat cells are destroyed and cannot grow back. CoolSculpting is a method of freezing stubborn fat cells, causing natural cell death. Over time, the body clears away the destroyed fat cells, resulting in a reduction in volume of the treatment area.
The fat-freezing procedure of CoolSculpting effectively removes fat cells in the targeted areas over a period of six months. The technique has been extensively studied through clinical trials to ensure its effectiveness and safety.
Your CoolSculpting Consultation
During a consultation, Dr. Graber will go through the details of the procedure and what to expect in terms of results. The primary goal of CoolSculpting is to sculpt and contour the body to the desired shape. It is important that the person maintains realistic expectations for the procedure.
Depending on the patient’s goals, Dr. Graber will offer a customized treatment plan to target trouble areas of the body. A customized plan is integral because no two bodies are alike and the location of the fat cells targeted varies. If there are multiple regions that require treatment, there may be multiple CoolSculpting systems at work.
What to Expect with CoolSculpting
The procedure of CoolSculpting is carried out by a trained physician. During the first treatment, the CoolSculpting device will be positioned on the targeted region. A warming gel pad will be placed on the region to protect the external skin. The device contains a vacuum applicator, which keeps the fatty tissue in place. The patient may experience light tugging and pulling at this time.
The temperature of the targeted area is then lowered as cooling energy is directed towards it. CoolSculpting takes around an hour per treatment area. The procedure is pain-free, but the sensation of intense cooling may seem unsettling at first. During treatment, the patient can relax and use mobile devices, read, or sleep comfortably.
The best part is that this procedure requires zero downtime. Patients can immediately get back to their lives, returning to work and their daily schedule.
